03/15/20 Update:

Finally posting a couple pics of my latest V6. It's taken a good amount of time for me to acclimate the burled maple top. It was really not the grain pattern that I was expecting. The guitar plays wonderfully and I'm just now finally bonding to the unique look of the top. Kind of that full moon reflecting on the water look.

Sweet specs! Love their burl tops, have 2 burl Vaders myself and they're my go-to guitars. Probably going to order an Osiris before this sale ends for a little variety...the one I want would be something like $1300 shipped right now which is a helluva deal!

The more I see of burled maple, the more appreciation I have for it, and the closer it gets to out-"scoring" quilted maple for my "someday" SH6. And the color will be something like Aqua, so I'm excited to see yours!

Congrats!

I'm a big fan of both woods, just depends on the guitar...here's some burl and some quilt to wet everyone's appetites for their upcoming builds :)

Aqua over burled maple is epic. Actually, the thumbnail for all of the social media and website is based off an Aqua V-Burst CT624 (It is not mine):

Also, I know this off topic... But the grey buckeye top on that second Vader is PERFECT...

Thank you! All credits for the cool Vader photos go to my fiance, but I took the one of the AC275 (hence the crappier quality!). And I do love that buckeye, it was a "top of the week" so I was able to grab it for half the usual price and that was what pushed me to finally pull the trigger and custom order my first Kiesel. I was on the phone ordering before Jeff even finished the live stream and I've been addicted ever since...

You're welcome! And welcome to the best sickness you've ever caught LOL.

The "pick your top" sessions pushed me over the edge on a few builds, too. I've never been able to nab one, but PYT sessions were the inspiration for both my K series and Delos finishes.

Definitely a killer top. That said, I can absolutely see why you needed time to acclimate to it. Not what I would've expected when putting in an order for a burled maple top. Has kind of an "aggressive" flamed maple vibe to it. Awesome looking build nonetheless.
Current Builds (of course lefties): Double-Neck Osiris, HD-FG2, CAM6, and DCM6 ///Past Kiesels: CS624, HH2 (Fretless), and CC275

That turned out great, bud. The finish makes me think of reverse monster.
